Honest Professional
I found Bill on Avvo and he was a great choice. I needed a probate lawyer to handle a property transaction with three parties. Bill quoted me a price range for his services upfront and came in at the low end of the range. Timely communications, flawless work, and a fair price…you can’t expect anything more. Highly recommended!

Client Ellen
When our Mom passed away several years ago, Bill handled the Reverse Mortgage notification for us. Then six years later we received hundreds of pages of documents about the property that we did not understand. The relief I felt and the burden that was lifted after I called Bill and spoke with him about the documents received in regard to our mother’s reverse mortgage is the biggest part of the reason for this excellent rating. I am also grateful for all the updates and assurances along the way. And, finally, his generous spirit and discount of very reasonable prices, well, that brought tears to my eyes. I truly did not know what to expect from the months of work he put into our case. The integrity and grace he displayed is my greatest joy. I am being honest when I say that I truly trusted him and put this whole matter in God's hands. You are the only lawyer I have ever done business with and I am so glad to have had such a good experience. I highly recommend William Miller as a lawyer.

My family and I use Bill for all our family legal work. Bill has done our several wills for my father and my wife and I, as well as handing the adoption of our youngest child in 2018. We trust Bill completely for legal guidance on what's best for our family.

Mr. Miller created a trust and a will so my children would be protected. He was very knowledgeable about the process and made it so easy. I had even had a complicated issue arise with my family and he understood the issue and my concerns and helped me rectify it quickly. Mr. Miller was readily available to answer all my questions and concerns. He also explained the documents to me so I could understand what the legal terminology really meant. I now sleep much better knowing my family is protected. Mr. Miller is very professional, respectful, trustworthy person. I would recommend him to everyone I know.

After dealing with the untimely death of a loved one who lived out state, we were not looking forward to dealing with attorneys to sort out family affairs. Our experience with William far exceeded our expectations! He was very professional and most importantly, he listened to our concerns and had crisp-clear answers for all of those concerns. The guy is genuine, which really went a long way with us.
